for michele bachmann. >>shepard: welcome. the first lady tonight, what is her mission? >>guest: well, i think she has a serious side, a message of what her husband has done as president. she has a human side, about what kind of dad he is, what kind of human being he is. if she does both of those, she will do well. >>shepard: appearing doing what? >>guest: showing him as a great husband a great father, and he is a great person. no question. he is just a bad president. she will talk about him more as a person opposed to the leader. it will be hard to talk about the help because it has not made things better for the american people but she will have to, rather than the reaching out of the independents she will have to real in the disaffected supporters. >>shepard: a controversy, there are a few things bubbling on the 24-hour cable cycle including the president giving himself an "incomplete," and what he is saying, i want for more years, duh. >>guest: he inherited a tough hand and he is digging out of a deep hole. that is not to blame george bush. i am soft on him, he is a good friend of mine but
seats in the house are being challenged. michele bachmann swept into office in 2010 with a 13-point lead. now she's only two points ahead of her opponent. allen west, nine-point lead in 2010 has turned into a statistical dead heat in 2012. congressman steve king held an impressive 33% lead in 2010, is now down to single digits. is this a rejection of their ideas and could lead to the country moving away from this extreme right philosophy in terms of a takeover by politics in washington? >> yes, if as president obama said, because he was right when he said that real power is not here in washington, you don't change washington from the inside, it does mean that people from the outside, it's not just about who gets elected. that's very important. and then people outside of washington have to keep the pressure on their members of congress to hold them accountable for what they said they were going to do. when we've seen people do that over the course of the last couple of years, that's the only time we've actually ever seen congress act that or coming to a fiscal cliff and over a deadline. y
bachmann or something. >> less the reporters you hear -- michele bachmann, santorum was up there, the gifts that keep on giving. >> bill: clarence, i have to ask you as the chief columnist for "the chicago tribune," one of many hats that you wear, the chicago teacher's strike is over. kids are back in school. who won that contest? >> i think in the short term, the teachers won. in the long run emanuel will. but this is a contest that, in my view, bill, had no winners. it just had losers which were the students because they lost over a week in the classroom that they sorely need. the problem is the city doesn't have any money. in fact, i've been -- i've been a journalist in chicago since 1969 under the original mayor daley, richard the first i have seen mayors come and go. one thing we all have in common is when the teachers want a new contract they go behind closed doors and the mayors give them whatever they want to try to avoid a strike. they used to have strikes so commonly that students would just expect them
they flirted with this idea of nominating people like herman cain and michele bachmann. >> stephanie: clint eastwood talking to a chair was the speech of the convention. how sad is this? 20% of viewers rated eastwood's bizarre speech as the high light, compared 17% for mitt romney, and 9% for paul ryan. >> their convention was so negative and such an attempt to actually introduce this guy who has been running for president for ten years. this convention paints a story of the president and first lady while connecting the policies. >> stephanie: i really wanted to say, this is how you do a convention. >> that's the way you do it. >> stephanie: and he did it with such charm and humor, in a way -- it was devastating. >> it was an indictment absolutely. and so much better than george w. bush's speech in tampa. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: you almost can't wait to here what they are saying in the right-wing world, because you are like really? dana lohse -- who was it -- was like i didn't think -- he was not at his best? really? well, you better hell hope he doesn't get any bet
. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome michele bachmann! [cheers and applause] ♪ >> god bless you. what a wonderful morning. good morning. thank you for that warm introduction. it is always an honor and a thrill to be back at the values voter summit. i want to thank tony perkins, the great people at f.r. c. before i start, i want to say a word about this concept you have heard about called "the war on women," the so-called war on women. i want to say it has about as much reliability and truthfulness as bill clinton's arithmetic. but this week, as we have seen to our horror, there is a very real war that is going on across the world, and that's what i want to take my few moments together that we have this morning. i sit on the intelligence committee. we deal with the nation's classified secrets, and this is a very real issue. and as we survey the political landscape today, it feels like it is deja vu all over again. because we are seeing struggles all across the middle east. we're seeing attacks on our embassy, in a way that we saw in the late 1970's. staggering unemployment. you would a
, and last night here in michele bachmann speak and the folks before her, it empowers -- last night, hearing michele obama speak, and the folks before her, it empowers me. i listened to c-span every day, all day, and i hear the hearings in congress, and i hear what has been happening. here in the president's wife speak last night brought me back to what i have felt all along about the democratic party. i grew up when nixon was president, when we had watergate, and i heard mrs. nixon, and now years later the revelation about her life. my folks were start republicans. .'m from california i remember mrs. reagan been the driving force during the time he was nominated and i watched what happened after all our country after the reagan years, the bush years, and i was waiting to feel this, and when clinton came in, i thought we came -- we were there, and we had 10 years of -- host: i will leave you there. guest: kathy, you are a target voter. what the democrats are doing in this convention is very much speaking to women. that is a smart strategy. republicans have traditionally had difficulty reachi
, if you go back to pampa, i saw gingrich on stage, i saw santorum on stage. i saw michele bachmann and herman cain. >> yeah. this was, if anything, tampa was a celebration of republican unity but joe is right that for every convention when you have a challenger who has gone through a primary you do have to go through this process. let's not forget in 2008 at the democratic convention 40% of democrats still wanted hillary clinton to be their nominee. >> that's right. >> that was significant division. and obviously it didn't really hurt barack obama all that much. bill: to both of you in the 30 seconds left, todd, does this make a difference and how much of a difference united versus divided or division or unity however you want to define it, how does that play out in '64 days? >> it would make a significant difference if it were true but it is not true. the fact is republicans are overwhelmingly united behind mitt romney. democrats are overwhelmingly united behind barack obama. bill: joe, give you the last word. >> whatever divisions there are they will be unified by the republican
. >> right. >> control our energy future. the kinds of things we know we have to do. >> michele bachmann is he mika brzezinski is here and here to ask why democrats are so great. >> why is this convention so awesome? will it address the issue of being better off or not than four years ago. that has been a theme the republicans have been jumping on but there's been success in terms of grabbing the message. >> president clinton was compelling on that last night. >> we have unemployment, we have a jobs crisis, a lot of people hurting. >> we do. i think that the question that people are asking, and the question people are tuning in to see, and the question they tuned in last week to watch governor romney's speech in hope to hear answers to, where do we go from here? where do we go from here? everybody understands we've come through a difficult time in this country, the worst economic crisis since the great depression, but how do we build from where we are? we're not losing 800,000 jobs. we're gaining jobs back. how do we move forward, rebuild the middle class. >> some people who feel they ca
